This study attempts to see that medical practitioners? idea of healing is no longer the trend, healing can also be seen in the collective experiences of pain and suffering. To reconstitute this point, this will look over the traditional framework of psychotherapy in the realm of Freud and Adler. Additionally, this will describe the hermeneutic-phenomenologist perspective of Heidegger, a small part of Gadamer's idea of listening to the other, until such time that it will scrutinize Gadamer's idea of pain which is a hermeneutic stance to be open to the said experience that has already been forgotten in the history. That is to say, we forgot to understand and surmount the mystery of our death, our own finitude. Perhaps, the capacity to treasure and value this constant process of going through this pain is also a form of healing.
